Garden Blooms

Come with me for a walk around my garden.
This yellow chinese lantern (Abutilon) has loads of beautiful flowers on it at the moment. It is a favourite flower for honeyeater birds too.

One of the port wine magnolias. This one has a beautiful perfume, and releases it's scent in the afternoon.......lovely. Can you see the bee in the flower?

Here is a rhondaleisha, and it is covered in clusters of perfumed pink flowers.

Pretty pink jasmine buds.
Walking round the garden, there are wafts of flowery fragrance......and bees buzzing .
The weather has warmed up considerably, almost like summer, these last few days. Just waiting for some welcome rain now.
